December 2022

Dear friends,

As the calendar year draws to a close, we find ourselves not even halfway through our concert series. In a few weeks we’ll celebrate our “Seasons of Love” concert, featuring all three of our choruses, along with special guest Santiago Alberto, emcee Brent Stevens and a professional orchestra. Tickets can be purchased by clicking on the icon directly to the right of this message, or by going to https://abqcorolux.org/tickets/

Also in December, our Chamber Chorus will give three performances of Handel’s incomparable Messiah with the New Mexico Philharmonic, all conducted by yours truly. For those tickets, visit nmphil.org

Right around the corner is the biggest and best FebFest yet, when we welcome conductor and composer Dr. André Thomas on February 4th and 5th. That event is open to all interested singers and is a non-auditioned festival chorus. For more information, or to register, click on the FebFest link at the top of the screen or go here: https://abqcorolux.org/febfest-2023/ That weekend event will culminate in a concert open to the public and held in Santa Fe’s lovely Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis, and the free-will offering will benefit Habitat for Humanity. FebFest is co-sponsored by the United Church of Santa Fe.

Later in February our Oratorio Society will once again collaborate with the New Mexico Philharmonic, this time in Beethoven’s magnificent Ninth Symphony, also known as the “Ode to Joy.” That concert will be held in Popejoy Hall on February 11th. For more information and tickets, go to nmphil.org

There’s more coming in April and May, but I’ll close this midwinter greeting for now, with one final thought. We will be adding a few voices in January. If you’re interested in auditioning to be a part of Coro Lux go here: https://abqcorolux.org/auditions/  And we hope to see you at one of our concerts soon, either as a part of the choir or the audience!

Warmly,

Brad
